One In Five High School Students Use E-cigarettes

Minnesota Survey: One In Five High School Students Use E-cigarettes

As claimed by the 2020 Minnesota Youth Tobacco Survey shows that 70% of high school and junior high school e-cigarette (heets heatsticks) users show signs of nicotine dependence. As well the survey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Health, aims to provide information about young people’s commercial tobacco use, design and evaluation of prevention efforts.


According to this new data, 19% of high school students and 3% of middle school students are currently e-cigarette users. While 34% of high school students and 8% of middle school students said they have used e-cigarettes. Compared with 2017, there is no statistically significant increase.


In addition to that, the data shows that four-fifths of Minnesota students reported the first tobacco product they tried was flavored. And the overall tobacco use rates of high school and middle school students who used tobacco products in the past 30 days fell to 20.5% and 4.1%, compared to 26.4% and 5.2% in 2017.


At the same time in December last year, the federal government raised the age limit for tobacco from 18 to 21 years old. In corresponding to this, Minnesota lawmakers hope that implementing the same law across the state should eliminate confusion among retailers and a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing tobacco use. The Tobacco 21 law was passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Tim Waltz in May last year bringing the state of Minnesota into line with federal and local tobacco laws.


Furthermore, Senator Carla Nelson of R-Rochester who has long advocated raising the age limit said that the main goal of the new legislation is to prevent young people from smoking e-cigarettes (heat not burn sticks) and subsequent nicotine addiction. And as a matter of fact, research shows that young brains are more addictive than the old ones.
